Field Audit Programs
MCGI provides Field
Audit service to our clients. All field-related quality
assurance/control activities are evaluated during an on-site systems
field audit. Performing field audits ensures that the appropriate
sample collection, documentation, and equipment decontamination
procedures are used.
design of an audit is tied directly to the objectives defined by the
client. Some clients simply want to find out if their contractors
are following the SOPs outlined in their work plans at a single
site. This type of audit is simple and straightforward. Other
clients want to evaluate the field equipment used by their field
staff or determine if the field team is complying with specific
requirements of overseeing regulatory agencies in several different
jurisdictions. This type of audit is typically more complicated,
requiring more time and a more substantial report.
MCGI’s auditors will make detailed observations about actual field
activities being conducted during the audit. Depending upon the
objectives of the audit, these observations may be evaluated against
required SOPs, against best available standard methods and
practices; or against corporate field procedure guidance.
Audits may be conducted as an unannounced visit to permit
observation of actual field practices. In other cases, the field
team is well aware of the audit and works with the auditors to
structure field activities that will cover all key practices and
procedures defined in the SOPs. In other instances, where the audit
is conducted as an independent third party review of field
procedures, the field team may be given a window of dates for the
audit to be conducted.
case of multiple sites, selecting which sites is dependent on which
will meet the objectives of the audit. For audits in which
compliance with requirements of different regulatory agencies is
being evaluated, a combination of sites can be selected.
MCGI’s final written audit report can vary from a simple checklist
report to a very detailed technical evaluation report. In addition
to written reports, photographic documentation of field activities
can also be included in the report pending security clearance with
the field site.
